Hot Bed Press member and tutor David Armes was artist-in-residence at Huddersfield Art Gallery during June 2016. The residency was part of the gallery’s collaborative ROTOR series with the University of Huddersfield’s School of Art, Design and Architecture, with Leeds-based East Street Arts as a third partner.
The work David produced was part of the Open House project and now forms an exhibition at the gallery that opens on 7th July, running until 27th August.
Responding to the theme of ‘wayfinding’, the work takes interactions with people around the town and gallery as a starting point and explores notions of place, space and ‘the accidental conversation’.
All the work was produced on three Adana 8×5 presses that David installed in the gallery space for the residency.
Inspired by the show? David is running a workshop at Hot Bed Press in Expressive Letterpress on the 6th and 7th August. Call me at the workshop on 0161 743 3111 to book your place.
